Adenosine Triphosphate, or ATP has been coined the “universal energy currency of life” and for good reason.

ATP is involved with creating proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, and nucleic acids, as well as an important role in cell signaling, and cell membrane potential.  For these reasons, it is easy to understand why ATP is so important.

When there is a decrease in blood flow or when there is insufficient oxygen or nutrients, cells cannot produce sufficient ATP to support life.

While ATP is recognized as important to survival, the efforts to harness the molecule and deliver it to cells have not been successful

- until now.

Why have previous attempts to harness ATP been unsuccessful?

  • There is not a way for cells to take up ATP.
  • ATP alone hydrolyzes rapidly when put into aqueous solutions.
  • ATP (at specific concentration ranges) activates purinergic and adenosine receptors which can lead to cell dysfunction.
  • ATP delivery methods were inefficient causing mixed results
  • Formulations containing ATP were not stabile and had short shelf-lives.

At Energy Delivery Solutions, we’ve found a way to deliver ATP to cells.
